This position is located at the Emerald Creek Campground on the St. Joe National Forest. Emerald Creek Campground features 18 camp units, potable water, and vault toilets. A short distance from the campground, the Garnet Area is one of our most popular recreation sites where, for a small fee, one can dig for gem quality star garnets. This is one of two places in the world where garnets of this quantity can be found, the other place is in India. The main duty is to monitor visitor use and ensure day use and site rules are being followed, as well as maintaing the site. Volunteer will provide visitors with maps/brochures as available.
